Brace yourselves, indie filmmakers. Sundance just got REAL.
The Hollywood Reporter's reporting that Oprah Winfrey is readying her jet to whisk her off to the Sundance Film Festival. Rumor has it the Big O is going to be some scouting for material to air on her new network, OWN.
Specifically, she's in the market for some documentaries and "smaller productions" to join her lineup of projects with stars like Julia Roberts.
Imagine the luck. You'd go to Sundance, just hoping someone will like your movie. Then BAM, Oprah buys it and you can now throw a sticker on the DVD cover that says "Oprah Approved."
Who could ask for anything more!
